Hope we didn't harsh your mellow. I think it's great you were able to build the kit. It takes a great deal of patience and skill. My hats off to you. I hope I didn't come off as bashing Mojotone. They provide parts and services for musicians that are not always easy to come by. I have heard their tech response time is excellent. It just leaves me shaking my head when a well known kit is sold without remedies to known issues. I hope they use your critique of the instructions to make it better for the next builder.
